GREENCAP accomplished another important step in the project’s progress with the completion of the preliminary assessment of its environmental and socio-economic impact. The GREENCAP project is dedicated to the development of critical raw materials (CRMs)-free supercapacitors and has already made important contributions in this direction.
Graphene and MXene-based electrode materials have been successfully produced from CRM-free precursors and using environmentally friendly approaches, eliminating the use of toxic/hazardous chemicals. Moreover, innovations in the synthesis of ionic liquids have enabled the formulation of novel thermally/chemically stable and non-flammable-based electrolytes. These achievements underscore the consortium’s dedicated efforts in identifying viable alternatives to CRMs.
